Proposed Provincial Framework for the Development of Ambient Air Quality Objectives

The purpose of this framework is to guide the development of air quality objectives in a manner that reflects the goals and guiding principles of the Ministry of Environment’s air quality program (formerly of the Ministry of Healthy Living and Sport), and promotes greater transparency, consistency and accountability in decision making.
